Becky Cloonan appears at Escapist Comics on Wednesday October 18th on Wednesday, October 18th at 5:00 PM!

Becky is a brilliant and accomplished artist and writer; besides being the 1st female artist to draw the main Batman title in 2012, she’s worked for almost every publisher in the industry. Her work with Brian Wood on Demo was nominated for 2 Eisner Awards. She also did the art for the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, written by Gerard Way & Shaun Simon.

Most recently she has written Punisher for Marvel and from Image Comics, Southern Cross which is part science fiction, part horror/mystery, all fantastically weird and original.

By Chance or Providence also has hit the shelves, recently recolored, this collection of short stories is hauntingly beautiful with each story having it’s own compelling theme. The only thing bad about this collection is that it will leave you wanting more.

MA – Becky Cloonan Signing

Press Release:

Acclaimed comic book creator Becky Cloonan will appear for a reception and signing event at That’s Entertainment in Worcester on Saturday, September 2nd from 1:00 till 4:00 PM. Cloonan will be signing comics and other memorabilia. She will be selling prints and pins at her table. The event is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome.

The reception celebrates the installation of an original 16-foot x 24-foot mural which Cloonan will paint on the Lois Lane side of That’s Entertainment’s building throughout the week prior to the signing event. Cloonan’s mural is part of the Pow! Wow! Worcester art event, and That’s Entertainment is one of the sponsors. Visitors will be able to see the mural taking shape beginning August 25th.

Becky Cloonan is a versatile and well-known comic book artist and writer, whose output has ranged from self-published mini-comics to work for the major publishers over the past fifteen years. In naming her one of the top female comic creators of all time, Comic Book Resources called Cloonan “a fast rising star [who] as a result… has a shocking list of credits for one so young” and added that “she has especially become known for her ability with horror, subtle or unsubtle. The ability to create real mood and atmosphere and emotional resonance through her imagery.”

For Vertigo, she worked with writer Brian Wood on Demo and Northlanders, and drew the American Virgin series. For DC Comics, Cloonan’s most notable work was as writer and artist on Gotham Academy, and she also drew issues of Swamp Thing and Harley Quinn. She became the first female artist in history to draw the main Batman title. Cloonan also wrote Southern Cross for Image Comics, and has also collaborated with Wood on Conan the Barbarian for Dark Horse Comics.

That’s Entertainment Manager Ken Carson says, “Cloonan’s Conan the Barbarian art was especially impressive and memorable for me. Conan has appeared in comics for almost 50 years, and actually goes back to the 1930s in pulp magazine stories. But Becky somehow gives the character a completely fresh take, so it all seems brand new again.”

By Chance or Providence: Stories by Becky Cloonan, just released in a trade paperback edition by Image Comics, collects in one volume her trilogy of award-winning short stories: “Wolves”, “The Mire” and “Demeter”.

“This volume is a showcase for Becky’s storytelling talent,” says That’s Entertainment’s Marketer Sorana Gatej.

“The best comic books blend words and pictures seamlessly, and her stories of sword and sorcery are haunting and lovely.”

“Anytime would be a fine time to host Becky Cloonan, and to have her create a giant, wonderful mural on our building,” adds Carson. “But since we are in the midst of celebrating our 25th year on Park Avenue, this all seems especially well-timed.”
